Ahmed Khan to Start Working for Baaghi 3 from Next Month!

While 'Baaghi 2' released today at the theaters, the makers of the high octane action thriller have already planned for its sequel in no time. Ahmed Khan, who made his directorial debut has been roped in to helm the third installment of the franchise as well.

Now the bigger question is, which Tollywood movie will they remake this time? Cause 'Baaghi' is basically a soft remake of 'Varsham' and 'Baaghi 2' is a remake of the smash-hit 'Kshanam'.

Here's a statement from the director “We will begin the work on it in full swing from next month. The scripting will take some time and designing the action, too, will take time, as we have to take it several notches higher. It all depends on how and when the script shapes up and what action I can think of and come up with, and what Sajid Nadiadwala approves. Baaghi 3 should look better,” Khan told PTI.

The only concern that Ahmed had while working for 'Baaghi 2' was whether he would be able to have a great opening – as good as the first one.

“The first one had opened at Rs 12 crore, that was the only fear. For us, the trailer of the second part has worked well. The only reason for me to do the film was Sajid Nadiadwala, Tiger Shroff, and action,” says Khan.

With Baaghi 3, Ahmed feels sequels are a better bet for directors as well as producers as audiences find a sequel a better watch than a solo, standalone film.

Disha Patani to Replace Kriti Sanon in Mohit Sur's Upcoming Film!?

As we all know, Mohit Suri is planning a film with Aditya Roy Kapur and 'Raabta' fame Kriti Sanon is rumored as the lead actress. But, as per the recent reports, it seems Disha Patani is all set to replace the Raabta actor in the film. 

According to a report by DNA, Suri had approached Sanon in the first place but her dates for this film clashed with those allotted for Housefull 4. Suri reportedly didn't intend to suspend his schedule and hence considered Patani for the same role.

The DNA report also suggests that sources within the industry claim that a confirmation regarding this development will be out soon (in about a week) as Patani gives her nod to do the film. The film is reportedly a love triangle. While Aditya and Patani (if she accepts the offer) are two characters in the film, another male lead will also be roped in.

M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story - Movie Review

Verdict - "Still feels like an Untold Story"

Directed by Neeraj Pandey and starring Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role, M.S. Dhoni: An Untold Story enlightens the childhood and the early life of one of the most decorated Indian Cricket Team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The film gives us a brief tour about Dhoni's tough struggle before making it to the National Team, the decisions and the sacrifices he had to make, his first job as a ticket collector in a railway station, his relationship with his family, ex-girlfriend and his wife. Piecing together the significant moments from his young manhood, the film also compounds a highlight reel of all the crucial moments from his eminent career like winning the first ever T20 World Cup or endearing the win of the fifty over World Cup nearly after 28 years.

With well over three hours of runtime, this film had a lot to offer, set up and develop but in the end, it still leaves with many crucial questions which are left without being answered or displayed. It felt more like a celebration of the person other than being a memoir that gives us more insight and understanding of the illustrious icon. Don't get me wrong, the first half of the film provides us few enlivening moments about how Dhoni transpired himself from a football goalkeeper to cricket wicket-keeper and from a TC to the captain of the Indian Cricket Team. But in the second half of the film up until the climax where we get to explore the sentimental relationship with his  ex-girlfriend and current wife was tedious to watch and it felt like they're just crammed in there to complete the storyline.

When portraying a person who was admired and beloved all over the country, the performance should be accurate and flawless and SSR went above and beyond with his portrayal in the film. His body language, charisma, and mannerisms were spot on and he brought the much-needed authenticity to the character when needed. Other supporting characters like Anupam Kher and Kumund Mishra gave few exceptional performances that were noteworthy

On the whole, they're many encouraging and inspiring moments in the film that were fascinating to watch. And discovering that hard work and struggle that he had to go through to achieve his goal was truly amazing to watch. With that being said, with a three-hour runtime, this film still feels like a half-baked hagiography where we are left with unrequited questions and dilemma.

My Rating - 2.75/5
Grade - C + (Decent Flick!)
